Childhood friends Talia and Dylan have been putting out fires as long as they’ve been in denial about their feelings. But one night everything changes, a fire’s lit, and it’s too hot to ever go out…
Wow, Lynn LaFleur knows how to give her readers HOT HOT firemen with a lot of heart. There are three novellas and each is a standalone story but there are relationships between the characters because they all live in the same city and are volunteer firefighters together. It is nice to have a little bit of a follow-up to the previous stories but not have to read them all in order to enjoy each one.
And each of them is a sensual treat. Her men are different but still wonderful heroes – they are caring, generous and strong of character. Her women are just as compelling – with their own issues and troubles. Together they make for complex reads in tiny little packages. And those reads are blistering both in the bedroom and out, so be prepared for some sizzle.
I often have trouble with novellas because I feel like I miss out on something due to the length – the flow is rushed or the characters are well defined or the plot feels incomplete – but LaFleur skillfully shows that she’s figured out how to tell a complete and addictive story in a small number of pages. Smokin’ Hot is perfect for those looking for a bite-size bit of fun, full of fire and emotion.
